Introduction Don Daufenbach stared at his computer screen. "Bobby2vt" was e-mailing him again, and this time he seemed excited. "Sounds like we have a deal," was the message that came in, Daufenbach says. "As for what I like . . . the younger the better," it said.

(Kershaw) The concept of the Internet was created in answer to a strategic problem faced by the United States government during the Cold war era.

Microsoft has had a couple of though months since July last year, when Judge Thomas Jackson ordered the company to break up in two. However, since the beginning of this year things have just looked better for Microsoft. The election of George Bush, who is against a break-up, has made Microsoft s situation better.
